The City of San José Housing Department invites qualified organizations to submit proposals to oversee the San José Bridge Program and/or the Emergency Interim Housing Program. This Request for Proposals (RFP) seeks to contract with one or more organizations to manage the programs collaboratively.
The San José Bridge Program (SJ Bridge) is an employment program for homeless San José residents. SJ Bridge will employ homeless individuals; assist in job training, long-term career goals and placement; and housing search and placement in San José.
The Emergency Interim Housing Programs (EIH) are temporary housing programs for homeless San José residents. The EIH offers onsite property management, operations, and services, including individualized support to up to 100 participants per site to build stability and self-sufficiency.
The City seeks highly competitive proposals for the SJ Bridge and EIH Programs. Successful proposals to administer the programs will demonstrate how they plan to seamlessly provide, either directly or through collaborations, all the services their clients need to become employed and permanently housed. The most highly competitive proposals are consortium proposals. Agencies may choose to enter into a limited partnership or subcontract with other agencies in order to provide a full range of services.
